While we've done the IBA version of this cocktail, it's not really anything like this recipe, that Between The Sheets recipe was more like a lemonade while this one is more herbal flavored sour with Benedictine. This build is still a bit sour much like the IBA version of Between the Sheets, but much less rum-flavored and probably a little less boozy compared to the other we have done.

The Bidwell Alexander smells like chocolate milk, almost has a True Moo flavor profile. Easy to drink, no alcohol within the flavor profile, just chocolate milk all up in the grill. This drink will go down fast and easy so take your time or pour just enough to drink in one sitting and don't go back for seconds. This drink doesn't have a lot of complicated ingredients so it should be a good go-to holiday cocktail.

A minty attack with an underlying oak centric blend that leaves your mouth minty fresh yet you feel like you just had a bit of cognac at the same time.

Fernet branca is included but isn't overbearing in this cocktail as it still holds a good bourbon profile with light herbal notes.

A citrus heavy sour with a white rum aftertaste/bite, no real brandy impact. Kinda reminds us of the lemon drop; more sour than a margarita but not as much as a lemon drop.
